Something which all men growing up discover is that you will need to start shaving on a regular basis. for some they start early and need a good shave each day to help maintain a nice clean look. This means they will need the proper tools to ensure they get a close shave. for today’s generation the 3 or 4 blade razors from Gillette are among the most popular. However, there is another option which is considered old school but can provide one of the best close shaves you can get, it’s called a Safety Razor.
A popular model is the Parker Safety Razor, with these razors you simply buy the handle (which is designed to last your lifetime) and some razor blades. the great thing is these razor blades are far cheaper, sharper and more durable than the blade cartridges you buy for modern razors. Think about the amount of money you spend on cartridges for your Mach 3 and how many shaves each cartridge will give you. It’s not something you tend to think about but over the course of a year you will spend quite a sum of money.
For most, modern razors provide a fast and easy approach to shaving with less chance of cutting yourself. the double edged safety razors provide just as close if not closer shave (some practice and technique goes a long way to a good shave) and is also far more economical over the years. Why not try it out for yourself, if you need more convincing why not ask a barber which razor they prefer and no doubt you will be searching for your very own Parker Safety Razor very soon.
